Automatically Update of Adobe Reader


during the installation of Adobe Acrobat Reader I'm asked during the setup progress to allow Adobe to let do the Adobe Acrobat Reader updates automatically in the future.

What does it mean? Does the application automatically download AND install
the Reader Update silently without any additional permissions? Because the user
who is working with the machine has no admin rights!

Since they have no admin rights the update will not go any further so it will just nag at the user that an update is ready. See 2.2.1
No, it will just display the "New update available" in the system tray. Users can double click it, and start the download and/or installation. So for normal users, it's still no use, as Admin rights windows will popup.

Hm, ok, is there a way to install this update automatically by machine account. I plan to deploy this product by SCCM2012.
Free Tool: ZipGrep

ZipGrep is a utility that can list and search zip (.war, .ear, .jar, etc) archives for text patterns, without the need to extract the archive's contents.

One of a set of tools we're offering as a way to say thank you for being a part of the community.

You will need to deploy the patches using either patched MSIs, or scripted installations of patch files or (what we do) integrate those patches or MSIs into WSUS which needs a helper component called LUP (found on sourceforge). All the details on these processes can be googled easily.

About SCCM which I have never used: isn't it supposed to be able to deploy patches of any kind?

Hi McKnife
thanks for your comment.
Do you have any experience with
SCCM update publisher?
Like I wrote: never used it, sorry.
